Paper Flower Craft

Attention parents! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the most special gifts are those made by the hands of your tiny tots. Here’s a craft idea to help your child create a special keepsake for mom.

What you need:

  • Photo of your child
  • Construction paper
  • Pipe cleaners or straws
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape



Cut the photo of your little one into a circle.


Encourage your child to choose a color (or two) of construction paper and cut out eight ovals for petals. Cutting should be done by an adult.


Help your child glue or tape the petals into a flower.


Glue or tape your child’s photo in the center of the flower.


Use a straw or pipe cleaner for the stem. (Tip: Twisting two pipe cleaners together makes a stronger stem.)


For a more advanced activity, help your child write a poem for Mom and attach it to the flower. Have fun!
